Rather than containing for the most part fairly detailed food science and technology intended for daily use and reference by food scientists and technologists, this book is designed for use by a much wider range of readers concerned with a particular and rapidly expanding area of food production, promotion, marketing, and packaging. A certain amount of basic detail is provided to enable relatively rough estimates of the production methods and packaging facilities necessary to enable new or improved items to be made, but the overall emphasis is on the wide range of food products that can now quite legitimately be regarded as coming within the broad definition of foods used as snacks, as contrasted with main meals. Thus, we start with the basic requirements to be met in a snack food whatever its nature, and follow with the great variety of items nowadays used 3..'l snacks or as adjuvants to snacks, concluding with an assessment of nutritional consequences of the growth of "snacking" or "browsing," and with the special packaging requirements of snack foods.
Providing a clear, comprehensive overview of the industry, Snack Foods Processing is the definitive handbook on developing, preparing, and processing shelf-stable savory snack foods. Contributors from leading companies and academic institutions provide practical information and guidance based on years of industry experience. Collectively, they review the principles and critical specifics of processing savory snacks, starting from raw materials selection and care, through types of equipment used and its proper operation, to product seasoning, and packaging. The book covers every major product type, including potato and corn chips, alkali-cooked corn tortilla chips, pretzels, popcorn, extruder puffed and baked/fried products, half-products, meat snacks, and rice-based snacks. It also discusses international snack foods, including those of China, India, and Japan. It details post shaping and drying operations, covering seasonings, flavorings application, product protection and packaging materials, and filling and cartoning equipment. Whether you are new to the field or you are a pro facing broader responsibilities, Snack Foods Processing provides valuable information gained through first-hand experience. It presents a clear introduction to the snack foods industry and its terminology and explains the technical interrelationships between the many materials and processes used in making the finished snack food. New entrants into the field will be able to confidently communicate with suppliers and associates. Managers and quality control personnel will gain a better idea of where to start in solving problems when they arise.
We all know that eating too much sugar and too much salt isn't good for us. It will surprise readers to learn just how dangerous eating too many sugary and salty snacks can be. Chips and candy are obvious culprits, but fruit snacks and other seemingly healthy snacks can also have high levels of sugar and salt. In this eye-opening book, readers will learn to look more critically at the snacks they eat and will learn about the serious, long-term health problems that are associated with a diet high in sugar and salt.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. An increase in the price of fruits and vegetables relative to less healthy foods could reduce consumers¿ incentives to purchase fruits and vegetables and result in less healthy diets. Whether such a change in relative prices and incentives has occurred in the U.S. is difficult to prove because of quality improvements in many fresh fruits and vegetables. For commonly consumed fresh fruits and vegetables for which quality has remained fairly constant, analysis of price trends reveals a price decline similar to that of dessert and snack foods. This price trend evidence suggests that the price of a healthy diet has not changed relative to an unhealthy one, although a healthy diet might not include every fresh fruit or vegetable currently available.

"Snacks" is a history of Canadian snack foods, of the independent producers and workers who make them, and of the consumers who can’t put them down. Janis Thiessen profiles several iconic Canadian snack food companies, including Old Dutch Potato Chips, Hawkins Cheezies, and chocolate maker Ganong. These companies have developed in distinctive ways, reflecting the unique stories of their founders and their intense connection to specific locations. These stories of salty or sweet confections also reveal a history that is at odds with popular notions of “junk food.” Through extensive oral history and archival research, Thiessen uncovers the roots of our deep loyalties to different snack foods, what it means to be an independent snack food producer, and the often-quirky ways snacks have been created and marketed. Clearly written, extensively illustrated, and lavish with detail about some of Canadians’ favorite snacks, this is a lively and entertaining look at food and labour history.

Food processing technologies are an essential link in the food chain. These technologies are many and varied, changing in popularity with changing consumption patterns and product popularity. Newer process technologies are also being evolved to provide the added advantages. Conventional and Advanced Food Processing Technologies fuses the practical (application, machinery), theoretical (model, equation) and cutting-edge (recent trends), making it ideal for industrial, academic and reference use. It consists of two sections, one covering conventional or well-established existing processes and the other covering emerging or novel process technologies that are expected to be employed in the near future for the processing of foods in the commercial sector. All are examined in great detail, considering their current and future applications with added examples and the very latest data. Conventional and Advanced Food Processing Technologies is a comprehensive treatment of the current state of knowledge on food processing technology. In its extensive coverage, and the selection of reputed research scientists who have contributed to each topic, this book will be a definitive text in this field for students, food professionals and researchers.
